Water Damage Claims
Any sort of water that pervades and wets any portion of a home, business or common space of an apartment complex is considered a water damage loss. An insurance policy will cover it whether it comes via the roof, a supply line or a sewage pipe.
These events are regarded as a danger and “an act of God” since they are not the fault of anybody. As a consequence, an insured’s insurance premiums will not increase as a result of the claim.
The most essential thing to remember is that “you must cut off or cap the leaking pipe as soon as you discover a leak until you can contact a family member or plumber to complete a fix”.
Remember the date of the loss, save any replacement components, and have your plumber or handyman create a brief report documenting the damage.
It is our responsibility to represent your interests to the insurance carrier representative who will visit you. We’ll present all of your paperwork and be available to answer any queries. Our duty is to act as your legal champion and ensure that the claim procedure is as painless and straightforward as possible. You are secure in our hands, and we will keep you informed at all times.
How to check for water damage
Water damage must be addressed as soon as possible. The longer a damaged or leaking pipe or a roof leak is ignored, the more water damage it will cause.
A pipe leak under the sink, behind a wall or in the basement bathroom can result in costly corrosion, mildew, and decay. If you don’t remove wet carpets or take care of the situation right once, mold will rapidly become a problem. Moisture must first be fully removed from the afflicted region. Dehumidification equipment can help with this. You’ll also need to deal with the stench and dry out the construction components, such as:
What is the source of your water damage?
There isn’t much that can be done to safeguard a property from water damage, unfortunately. When water damage happens, it is critical to file an insurance claim as soon as possible, since it can lead to mold and rust if not addressed promptly. Water damage is one of the most prevalent problems that homeowners face. A roof leak is one of the most prevalent forms of water damage insurance claims. Check your roof for mold, moss, and decay at least twice a year. Also, keep an eye out for discoloration on the interior of your home’s ceiling.
